Yahoo spent $163 million on acquisitions last quarter

October 15, 2013: 4:26 PM ET

Yahoo has now spent nearly $1.2 billion on acquisitions in 2013.

FORTUNE -- Yahoo Inc. (YHOO) today (barely) beat analyst expectations, reporting earnings of $0.34 per share and nearly $1.09 billion in revenue. The company also disclosed that it spent $163 million on eight acquisitions between July and September.

That's a far cry from the $1.03 billion spent on eight companies in Q2, highlighted by the massive Tumblr acquisition. But if you pull out Tumblr, Yahoo actually spent more, on average, for each of its Q3 acquisitions ($20m vs. $6m).

Yahoo has not yet provided any specific acquisition prices for its eight Q3 acquisitions, which were: Bignoggins, Qwiki, Xobni, Admovate, Ztelic, Lexity, Rockmelt and IQ Engines.

It is believed that the two largest deals were RockMelt and Xobni, with media reports putting those at $75 million and $48 million, respectively. But, again, no confirmation of those figures from the company itself. Possibly we'll get more details in the 10-Q filing or during this afternoon's earnings call with CEO Marissa Mayer.

So far this quarter, Yahoo already has acquired two companies: HitPost and BreadLabs.
